Dirty Energy (2012) (trailer)
Part 1   Part 2   Part 3                              

Trailer for the feature documentary Dirty Energy premiering in 2012! On April 20th, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded off the Gulf of Mexico taking the lives of 11 workers and sank as millions of barrels of oil poured into the ocean creating one of the worst environmental disasters in history.

Dirty Energy tells the personal story of those directly affected by the spill who now struggle to rebuild their lives amidst the economic devastation and long-term health risks. A story too often glossed over by the mainstream media and ignored by those sent to Washington to represent the will of the people, not the corporations. The fate of the Gulf region and its inhabitants is largely unknown.

The systematic failures of BP and the Federal Government to properly confront this environmental calamity with honesty and integrity have had powerful consequences. Sadly the human cost has been greatly underestimated and hidden from the public. Still today, the people of the Gulf are fighting to preserve their endangered way of life. This is their story.
